My Medium

I think the main reason that my drawings haven't been that great lately is because I've been busy with freelance, and it doesn't leave much time for drawing my own stuff. It could be the tools I use, though.

"What Happened?"

Sorry to be such a curmudgeon, but having to use crutches attracts a lot of unwanted attention.

The Stench of Healing

I'm not allowed to bathe for 3 days now. Doctor's orders. Patients odors.

Knee Surgery Redux

Sorry you've had to look at my hairy arm for the past few days. Here's something different: my hairy leg. I'm getting knee surgery tomorrow (Tuesday) at 12:30pm (PDT). Wish me luck (just don't say "break a leg!").

Too Late

It's too late to blog.


There were many things I could have told you about today, but I narrowed it down to three:

1. I actually saw that sign about landfills on the side of a garbage truck! Wow, talk about spin! I bet the "wildlife" is very grateful that they now have a gigantic, wretched hellhole to live in: "Thank you humans! We were getting so tired of living in pristine wilderness!"

2. Speaking of wildlife, I saw four raccoons climbing up a tree on my bike ride home tonight.

3. I was making an omelette for dinner, and when I flipped it over superheated butter splashed into my eyes and pretty much all over me. (Maybe it wasn't superheated, but it was hot I tell you!) Anyway, my eyes probably needed a good scalding after having seen that sign equating landfills with wildlife preserves.

So, I was riding my bike home at 10PM tonight, and in the span of two blocks I encountered EVERY stupid, careless person in Burbank. So, I thought to myself, "A good way of approaching the world is to expect everyone you encounter (outside of those people you already know) to be stupid." And, a moment after thinking this, I saw a black cat chase a white cat across the street in front of me.

Not that I think that the universe or God or whatever arranged to have those two cats cross my path just to illustrate a point, but it did seem rather serendipitous that my black & white thinking would be so immediately mirrored in the physical world. Cool, eh? It just reminded me that putting the brain on autopilot is not an authentic way of living. There just isn't an easy way out.

That being said, when riding a bike on city streets you'll live longer if you adopt the mindset that everyone else in the world is an idiot.

When I don't have anything interesting to tell you, I give you stuff like this.

All this biking hither and yon and freelancing and fitful sleep is taking its toll!

The Price of Politeness

Sometimes I forget that when people ask how I'm doing they are simply being polite and that they aren't really interested in how I'm doing.

If you've got a couple hours you could watch this film. Watch the whole thing, though, because it covers a lot of ground.

Keeping Up Appearances

This is what I do in the morning. So do you. I'm hairy, though. What's your excuse?
